I force myself to ask a mixture of hard and easy answers–
Do you like scary movies?
Do you do puzzles
Where is your anger
He has a self-effacing way of saying he used to “act up”
This is a little like saying Mussolini used to be into public oratory
So I ask
How is your anger (anyway)?
He says his psychologist
Tells him he is letting it out
(like a Jack Russell terrier roaming the cul-de-sac?)
…When he does ordinary things
It is gone now
I am always reading the subtext
